MIND YOUR FOOD CHAIN

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT; YOU ARE WHAT YOUR FOOD EATS!

It’s true, “you are what you eat,” and that logic applies to the entire healthy food chain, so mind your diet. One very important and often overlooked factor of our wellbeing is the health of the plants and animals we consume. It’s important to consider the methods used to grow or raise our food and also the process used to get that food into our hands, so mind your food.

When it comes to cost, nutritional value, and taste, shorter healthy food chains are superior to longer ones. The harder it is for you to imagine your potential food as a living organism and how it got into your hands, the less likely it is to be a healthy choice, so mind your diet. And the grub with the shortest food chains are found at your local farmer’s market, where you get to interact directly with the good people who are growing your food. Even with whole foods – such as pears, carrots, beets, and lettuce – it’s much easier to imagine the healthy food chain via a farmer’s market than it is through a super market. With that said, the process of making most packaged foods with strange chemical ingredients is near impossible to visualize – which is a good reason to stay away and mind your food!

LOCALLY GROWN AND RAISED IS OFTEN CHEAPEST AND HEALTHIEST.

If you haven’t already, give your local farmer’s market a try and mind your food. Even if it doesn’t become a regular thing, it’s a good educational experience to know what your options are. It’s definitely far cheaper than buying organic produce at a super market. Just the thought of a “certified” organic onion makes me want to cry.

If these aren’t reason enough to venture out beyond the cold aisles of Piggly Wiggly or Whole Foods, check out the link below and remember to mind your diet.
